When Disaster Hits Home for Our Own
Fires. Floods. Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Earthquakes. Wildfires. Civil Disturbances. When disasters strike, fire fighters are called to respond, even while their own families may be displaced and their homes damaged or destroyed.
The Disaster Relief Fund provides immediate financial assistance to help these displaced fire fighters and their families while they continue to serve the surrounding communities.
Our Disaster Relief Fund provides financial assistance to members living in disaster areas who have also experienced losses of their own and has provided more than $5 million dollars in assistance since its inception. Donate here.
